A House Committee sets out on Monday to prove Donald Trump was directly and even legally culpable in the storming of the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, making the case he kept pushing his stolen-election claim knowing it wasn’t true.

The 10 a.m. hearing will be the second of seven planned by the panel this month, representing an early test of whether it can keep Americans tuned in. While not a prime-time event like the committee’s opening session on Thursday, which drew more than 19 million viewers, it will be seen in live coverage on NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN.
